The Baltimore Sun, one of the leading Democratic papers of the East, attributes the Democratic de feat in this State to the "rag baby."" The Sun says : Regarded as the trial of an issue deliberately made before the people of the most important western State ts to the sort of currency to be adopted by the United States in the future, regarded, m fact, as a tesi struggle between the politicians and the people on the matter of what is called "the Uuio idea, the Ohio election is of great importance. Its results Emy shape the politics of the future and especially of the lmpecd- ng contest for the Presidency in 1880 in a most salutary way. TLt lection, which seems to Lave been participated in by nearly every voter the State, suows conclusively, a-nd it is to be hoped finally, that the inflation heresy, no matter how -itrongly endorsed by those who ivould set themselves np as the jhampions of a great political party ; no matter Low forcibly buttress ed by subsidiary issues cf tLe utmost importance and urgency, from a con stitutional poiut of view, cannot suc ceed in securing a majority of votes to support i even in S-ates where he advocates of "rag money were thought to be strongest. It ought to be admitted now that at least a naiority of the people of tlie West. as well as the pet plo of the East, ire in favor of honest mon-y, of hon st payment of all public debts, and of a return to the substantial coin based on currency with which our fathers were contented. And even the Washington Post idmits that this is a lesson of the e'ec tion, and it charges defeat upon Ew ing, as fo Jows : The resnlt is probably dun, more than anything else,to the unfortunate stand of Gen. E.ving on the financial question, lha people of Ouio evi lentlv to not believe in soft money. On the whole, we think it is about time for the Democratic party to rec gnize the fact that this is a hard noney country. Lt it return to its old time principles, and act in every instance accordingly. General Grant being pressed to taste some California wines in San Francisco, declined, with the remmk that he had not p u taken of a drop of alcoholic drink during Lis entire trip, notwithstanding the seductions of banquets, supplied from royal cel lars, and imperial vintages. He is not a professed abstainer or teetotaler, but as a matter of choice and habit, has not tasted intoxicating drinks of any kind for several years. The entry and purchase of public lands for settltment is now greater than for years. In 1ST7 the cumber of acres taken was 3,4S0,0C0. In 1S78 7,700,000. The amount taken up the first three months of the present fiscal year indicates a total for, the year of marly 10,000.000 cf acres. This indicates unmistakably the rush of empire wsst waruly. Texas is not included in this state ment, as all public lands there be long to the State. in to as n ai A of Iron is going" up ami tlie cost of building faln'i s Las advanced " for eiicli ton. Lut tLe ilt manita of re vivicg commerce will tnaLIe the owners of ships to raj.kliy ncovirr in freights the increased cost cf construction. Agitation in Ireland. Ireland is in a very distressed con dition, most of the small farmeri being unable to pay their rent3, owing to tha failure of the crops. A great tenant's rights meeting was recently held in JIallow. It whs addressed by Sir Joseph Mc Kenna and other members of Parlia ment. Twenty thousand pecpla were present. Resolutions wera nassed, calling the attention of tha Government to ths distressed con lition of Ireland, and suggesting the establishment of a system of State relief and a general abate ment of renf8. Mr. Mitchell, Member of Par iament for the County of Galway, ipeiking at a meeting numbering S.000 persons,on the land question.at Olifd -n, Ireland, declared that if tha Government left the people without relief for tbe winter, tbev wnr.l.i hold them responsible before Enropa for a repetition of the Irish famine. England's Crop Failure. A cartful estimation of the crops in England this season puts down the amount below an average on tha grain crop alone at 23,000,000, and 3140,000,000, if beans, peas, and rya are added. Potatoes show a los3 cf $75,000,000, hops of SG,230,000, and hay of 73,000,000. Here is a total loss of little less than $300,000,000. It 13 further 6aid that England will have to import at least 16,000,000 quarters of wheat, against 14, 600, 000 quarters last year. TLe Mcaraguan Minister of Pub lic Works has written a letter to an engineer at Washington relative to the icter-oceanic canal, in which ha says : "In regard to the action this Gct ernmeut may take in the matter rela tive to promoting the f xecution of this wotk, you are in a position to know it from your intimate knowl edge of this country. You know our Wrongest desire is to realize the exe cution of the great work on which this country bases all its hopes for futuro development. We expect to ' hear that a commission has started o treat with our Government on this subject; when it arrives you will see that nothing will be wantin that may be required of us." An Ohio man, writing from Colo rado to the Springfield Republican, ays: "Within the last few years lot of mines have been sold in Ohio tnd other Sta'es, to parties who have simply lost all thy put into 'hem. High sounding names did the business. Work be"-nn. expended, and all only to find thra was nothing in them, never had been, and no likelihood of ever being mything but holes in the ground." The ordr of Secretary Sherman to the sub-Treasuries and Govern ount depositories to pay ont coin "oth gold and silver on all Govern ment obligations, will soon have tha effect to produce a mixed currency ;,'oid. silver and paper.
